A late goal from Failee Ghazli was enough to hand the Deer all three points at the Tuanku Abdul Rahman Stadium at the weekend, which saw them climb up to sixth in the Malaysia Super League.
However, Failee's strike was the first time a Perak player had netted in four games so far this season, after a Nuraliff Zainal Abidin own-goal had earned them their 1-0 win over T-Team, and Azraai admits his players need to be more clinical in front of goal.
"Our strike force is still very blunt," he told the New Straits Times.
"We wasted several chances from the start of the match. We seem able to create chances but not finish them."
Negri coach Divaldo Alves, who was put in charge of the side after Azraai left to take charge of Perak in the off-season, slammed his team after Saturday's loss left them rooted to the foot of the table with one point from four games.
"The performance of the team is unacceptable," the Portuguese conceded.
"In four games, to lose three and draw one is unacceptable."
Perak are next in action on Tuesday when they entertain Selangor, while Negri have a tough trip to defending champions Kelantan.
